SYBA CL-HD-MRDU25S Mobile Rack for 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Love It 09/04/2011

This review is from: SYBA CL-HD-MRDU25S Mobile Rack for 2.5" SATA

Pros: Nice looking. Sturdy design. I own four and highly recommend them.

Cons: Doesn't support any 2.5" drives larger than 9mm.

Other Thoughts: Get an SSD for speed and put your OS and Apps on it. Get another 2.5" drive (perhaps a 750GB) and put all your data on it. Put them both in one of these, and you will be a happy person.

Or, if you use Linux, get several with 750GB drives and combine them together using btrfs. Works better than RAID (though still a little immature ATM). Hot swapping is a nice bonus.

Acer B273Hbmidhz Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great monitor. Good value for a 27 inch display.

Cons: Built in speakers are rather poor, but that's true of almost all built in speakers. Not a B273HU.

Other Thoughts: Have a B273HU (the 2048x1152 model) and wanted another one. It seems Acer doesn't make it any more, and you can't find it anywhere, so I got this model instead. Looks almost identical. Almost. The picture quality is actually better, but I prefer the higher resolution of the B273HU.

LG Blu-ray Player BD390
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Love It 10/14/2009

This review is from: LG Blu-ray Player BD390

Pros: Easy to set up.

Has a built in 802.11N Wi-fi card and streams video from Netflix, Youtube, or a PC. Supports both Divx and Xvid. Oh, and I guess it supports CinemaNow, though I don't see a reason to use it.

Upscaling DVD looks great. In fact, I got the Blu-ray for Serenity just so I could do a comparison and even at 1080p I had a hard time telling the difference between upscaled DVD and Blu-ray.

Cons: No SD card slot.

Remote doesn't work with Sharp Aquos TV's, so it needs a good universal remote such as a Logitech Harmony. The Logitech Harmony rocks, so I'm not missing anything here.

The wireless signal strength is kind of low and I have had the wireless drop on me a few times, but I may be able to improve this by changing the channel my router is using. When the Wi-fi drops out I have been able to restart the movie where it left off, but I wish I didn't have to do that. I'm tempted to knock off an egg in the rating for this, but I won't.

Other Thoughts: It comes with Nero MediaHome for sharing movies from a PC, but it isn't necessary as any Windows type shared folders will work (I had no problems sharing from my Linux server using samba). The file browsing interface is pretty good, but works best with smaller directories.

All it needs to be my ultimate media box would be support for Hulu, but since nothing else out there does I can't count this as a con. If this were to appear in a future firmware update that would be awesome. Come on Hulu, all the other big services are supporting Blu-ray players, TV's, and the Roku, get with the program!
